1/156 Garden walls and terrace walls
adjoining south-east of
Garden and terrace walls. 1904. Coursed small blocks of Cocktree stone ashlar with
granite ashlar coping.
Description: from the front left end of the gatehouse range of North Wyke a high
wall with soffit-chamfered granite coping extends forwards (south-eastwards)
regularly ramping down to accommodate the falling ground. In the centre it is
interrupted by a gateway with square section gate posts rising higher than the wall.
These have soffit-moulded granite coping and ball finials. It contains original
tall wrought iron double gates enriched with twists, scrolls and fleur-de-lys. At
the bottom it returns north north-eastwards revetting the terraced lawns in front of
the house and rising as a low parapet with soffit-moulded granite coping. The
outside of the wall is buttressed by a series of piers. The parapet ramps up to
these either side and they have ball finials. It projects forward in a semicircle
around a bench and further on there is a flight of stone steps from the garden
terrace to the farmland below.
This wall and terrace is part of a garden scheme associated with the 1904
refurbishment of North Wyke (q.v.).
